For Kids’ Sake Art Auction is Open!

We are thrilled to announce the Opening of the 17th Annual For Kids’ Sake Art Auction, running through April 28 at Longbranch Café & Bakery, 100 E. Jackson Street and Hair Brains Salon, 127 N. Washington Street, in Carbondale, IL.

The Auction features over 200 pieces of art from Southern Illinois, Bangladesh, Japan, Germany, and Switzerland. The majority of artists are children, with professional artists featured as well. In addition, over 50 local businesses have donated goods and services for the Auction. See the show and bid on your favorite pieces of inspiring art!

This year, the Art Auction is part of a larger fundraising campaign: 2017 Patrons for Good Health. Our goal is to raise $40,000 by June 30 to provide comprehensive healthcare for 550 Bangladeshi orphans. Every art purchase and donation will go directly toward the goal.

As part of the 2017 Art Auction, three exciting Raffles are available: 1. 2016 Honda Metropolitan Scooter, 2. 2016 Oset Kid’s Electric Dirt Bike, and 3. Gift Cards from over 25 local restaurants to “Eat Out for a Year!”

Mark your calendar to join us at the Closing Celebration on Friday, April 28, 6pm at the Longbranch Cafe and Bakery.
